Of course if you can add studs on 8" rather than 16".. that would be nice.
I never worked a burglary in which thieves did not kick or pry open every locked door. I never worked a burglary where they even attempted to open a gun safe. I worked quite a few burglaries of vacation cabins on the lake. Thieves had plenty of time, they usually just wont tackle the safes.
